The CrimeCraft servers are now back online, bringing along the game's first major content update, and introducing a new free trial program.
NEW YORK, NY, October 26, 2009 -Vogster Entertainment, LLC, an international innovator in video game design and content, is pleased to announce the implementation of their previously announced Unlimited Free Trial Program, new Tiered Subscription model and the first major Content Update for CrimeCraft, its Persistent World Next-gen Shooter (PWNS) for the PC. Now gamers will have the freedom to play CrimeCraft for free for as long as they like, or unlock the full set of game features and game options with the flexible Standard ($4.99/month) or Premium ($9.99/month) subscriptions.
Key details of the free trial and newly minted subscription model are below:
· Unlimited Free Trial -new CrimeCraft players will be able to experience the majority of game features for free for as long as they want.
· Seamless Transition - players can seamlessly convert from a free trial to a paying account and switch between subscription levels. Features will be placed "on hold" or unlocked based on the current subscription level.
· Varied Subscription Options - In addition to playing for free as long as you want, CrimeCraft will introduce a new Standard Subscription for $4.99/month in addition to the current $9.99/month Premium Subscription option. More casual CrimeCraft players can gain access to all the major features the game has to offer through the Standard Subscription, while the Premium Subscription is targeted at the hard core players that want to immerse themselves fully into the larger gang warfare meta-game.
In addition to the freedom of choice regarding subscription options, the first major expansion of in-game content has been released today for CrimeCraft. Players can now enjoy a new PvE mode that pits them against AI gang bosses across 14 maps; a new PvP loot system; a new NPC gang that offers additional lore and jobs; as well as an in-game newspaper that contains player-generated content and proclaims the victories and beat-downs of the player-controlled Sunrise City gangs. Also added are city-wide billboards that appear in the common area lobbies and proclaim the "Most Wanted" gangsters, spreading player notoriety and building the reputation of the most lethal player-controlled gangs in CrimeCraft.
CrimeCraft will continue to be available for sale as a comprehensive "all-in-one" package that bundles the client with prepaid premium subscription access and limited edition or exclusive in-game items. To purchase such a package, please visit local Best Buy or FutureShop retail stores, or go online to BestBuy.com, Direct2Drive.com, or Steam.com.
The Unlimited Free Trail client is available for immediate download at CrimeCraft.com and a number of official mirror sites listed and continually updated there.
